Step aside HG Wells, take a break Jeff Wayne, go back to your trailer Tom Cruise, Lamphouse is tackling War of the Worlds and they’re doing it…..on a budget!

War of Worlds (on a budget) features one man, a loop pedal, a ukulele, lots of cardboard, many many hats and several absolutely terrifying (definitely not made out of paper) tripod puppets. Can our hero outrun the aliens, play 25 characters, unwind himself from the microphone cable, stop for a tea break and save the day before it’s too late?

Featuring a full soundtrack of brand new music, and paying homage HG Wells’ story with extra (party popper based) explosions, War of the Worlds (on a budget) is the musical comedy action adventure we didn’t know we needed!

Suitable for ages 12+
